NFL Player Props Picks
Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Over 42.5 Rush Yards
Hurts has gone over this prop in five of seven games this season. I’m projecting him for closer to 48.5 yards.
49ers RB Elijah Mitchell Over 66.5 Rush Yards
Left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) could make his return this week, opening more lanes for Mitchell, who is coming off a standout performance against the Colts’ top-ranked rush defense in Football Outsiders’ DVOA with 18 carries for 107 yards and touchdown.
Mitchell has been the clear lead back since returning in Week 5, relegating Trey Sermon to only one carry over the past two games.
Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson Over 34.5 Rec Yards
Patterson recorded only two catches for one yard against the Dolphins last week despite a season-high routes run rate (67%). If he comes anywhere near that against the Panthers, he should clear this number — he’s gone over it in four of six games this season.
I’m projecting him for closer to 39.5 receiving yards.
Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle Under 64.5 Rec Yards
Waddle has had a rookie season, but draws a tough matchup against the Bills’ No. 1 pass defense in DVOA. DeVante Parker could also make his return while Preston Williams’ role could grow, so I’m taking the under on Waddle.
Texans WR Brandin Cooks Over 60.5
This number is just too low — Jalen Ramsey won’t be covering him, so Cooks should still see plenty of targets, especially if Tyrod Taylor returns.
